Nay. I think they were without a doubt more influenced by Half Life 1. HL2 for me was all about the introduction of amazing physics. When I saw the technology demo for HL2, I was blown the F away. Especially watching the barrels fall down into the water between the pegs.
On the other hand, by the time HL2 actually released, other games were out that had also incorporated their own physics into their games. Thus HL2, while still impressive, lost some of it's amazement. I also feel HL2 is vastly inferior to HL1 overall in regards to puzzles and pacing.
If anything, Black Mesa proved that. Sure, it's HL1 with a new coating of paint, but don't forget, this was out in 1998...

As if this is a bug? It's 100% intentionally a design decision, and now the information is mixed in with bugs and no longer a standalone issue. This makes it appear to be something that will be fixed and wasnt supposed to happen. You catching on the agenda there?
Also, that subreddit is moderated by people that Tencent chose to run it as "trusted moderators". AKA- people who will do what we tell them. It's entirely counterproductive to a user-run website to have owners of a product moderating the content.. we can all agree there.

I'm so tired of all the winning.
Yeah, I'm really pissed about this now.
"Ontario has come under widespread criticism for its sluggish testing rate. With nearly 40 per cent of Canada’s population, Ontario has the lowest per-capita testing rate in the country at about 350 per 100,000 people — less than half the per-capita rate of the other large provinces. It currently processes about 3,000 tests per day."
And it's all because of money. Fucking cons always cheap out on this stuff. And when it all goes to shit after the fact they'll do what they always do 'Derp! No way we could have known testing would help.'
You can't flatten the curve if you don't know who's sick! Call out the fucking military. Set up MASH units. We need mass testing and quick. That isolates the actual sick and lets the rest of life get back to some semblance of normalcy. Half measures are just a waste of time and money.
